Early TV was always live. Wrestlers were almost civilized. We visited an uncle, hypnotized from staring at a test pattern. I was on a noon TV show. I was prideful until a man on the street asked, “ Did I see you on TV?” Yes I said, “he said, I wondered who that fat man was.” Oh! Stardom you’re so fleeting.
